Surprising New Theory on Long-Term Weight Loss With David Prologo, MD, FSIR, ABOM-D

long term weight loss mindset for losing weight weight loss willpower Jun 29, 2022

Dr. David Prologo is a dual board-certified interventional radiologist and obesity medicine specialist. Dr. Prologo has spent more than twenty years specifically analyzing the phenomenon of diet attrition—why do diets always fail? More importantly, when they do fail, why do we blame the patients for that failure?

That journey led Dr. Prologo to perform first in human advanced interventional procedures to manage obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic conditions. It further led to the identification of the catching point—a clear pivot point beyond which calorie restriction and exercise are easier for patients.

Many people think that if you can’t lose weight, there’s a willpower problem. Dr. Prologo explains why this theory is totally wrong. In this episode, Dr. Prologo dives deep into what stops people from losing weight and sustaining weight loss. Tune in as we talk about reaching critical exercise capacity, the importance of recovery, and how to start craving healthy foods.
